22nd July, 2017 Beachy Head Overcast SW 4

We covered Birling lane and then a sea-watch from 07.10-07.45. We then birded the Birling scrub, Shooters Bottom, Old Trapping Area, Hotel Garden and Icky Ridge. RE also covered Birling lane and then onto Whitbread Hollow.

Area very quiet with a few new Blackcaps seen on the Headland but no diurnal movement seen.
